Number Line: Humberwood Downs Public School

The Humberwood Down Public School teacher team worked closely with the Toronto District School Board’s Instructional Leader in Numeracy to investigate the ways in which young children develop concepts of unit, measurement, and proportion through constructing and exploring number lines.

Humberwood Downs Junior Middle Academy is located at the edge of the Humber Arboretum in north Etobicoke. The school was opened in partnership with the Toronto Catholic District School Board, the Toronto Public Library and Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation in 1996. The school serves approximately 1100 students representing almost 50 different language groups.
